Our trip this weekend was sooo much fun!
what was not fun was coming home and developing a fever and whooping cough.
darn, airplane air!!!
So, in my medicine induced haze/boredom, I thought I'd put up our pictures from the weekend.
We went for a lovely wedding weekend in...
I looooove Austin!
I'm very sad to say I'll be losing one of my best friends to this great city...
but, on the bright side, at least I have a cool place to visit from now on!
We left Savannah Thursday...
The one and only Hal Holbrook was on our flight
in first class, of course
Remember him from
Designing Women? The Firm? Fletch Lives?
He is apparently in the new film Water For Elephants, playing Old Jacob!
He was in Savannah shooting a new film
We connected in Atlanta and had a 2 hour wait till our next flight.
Someone wouldn't get of his blackberry and enjoy the view!
We arrived into town late, late
The next morning we decided to partake in the very economical hotel breakfast
25 dollars for eggs and bacon!
What a rip...
Then again, how often do you get breakfast in bed?
After our hearty, but bank breaking breakfast it was time to explore Austin!
Unfortunately, I was left all by my lonesome because T was off doing his groomsmen duties...
It is never a good idea to leave your wife alone in a city where they sell
on every corner...
I mean, just look at the selection!
And those are just the size 7's!!!
I really wanted these, but after my 25 dollar scrambled eggs, I decided to conserve...
My only purchase were these two clutches
It was lurve at first sight...
I love nearly everything about Austin
Its clean, it has neat signs...
and nice grafitti
and you can adopt a cute pup right off the sidewalk!
and it has great SHOPPING!
look at all this stuff!
you could spend all day in this shop
and i almost did...
I really loved these knobs
they almost came home with me
Lots of Frida gear...
and Day of the Dead stuff
not really in my decor...
but very cool to look at!
Loved these copper switch plates
Now to the antiques shops...
I looooved this tray...
and this mirror!
I still regret not purchasing this!
Need a armadillo belt buckle?
May a longhorns skull
I'm actually glad T didn't see this, he may have approved this purchase!
how about another belt buckle???
Don't mess with ...
Now, lets talk about the food!
Anywhere, that you can buy cupcakes out of an airstream trailer that has a giant cupcake twirling on its roof is a place I need to live/visit regularly...
Not to mention a place that has
Yes, salsa bars
I'm in heaven
And, don't even get me started on the variety of margaritas!
There are margaritas everywhere!
Good gracious, they were good!
Meet the "Don"
Probably named after some poor patron that had too many...
Or the Godfather?
Who knows, who cares, it was good!
By this time T had finally finished his manly man duties and returned to me...
We walked around a bit more and stopped to hydrate before venturing back to the hotel
After two "Dons" I needed some hydration
T asked the waitress what was good and after rattling off a couple of things...
he opted with the...
"just surprise me"
and. she. did.
Have you ever seen such a concoction?
T looked like a college freshman drinking this
and I couldn't stop laughing...
Austin is an awesome city
the shopping is wonderful, the people are friendly, the music is good, the drinks are strong
and I can't wait to go back!!!
